Julia welcomed a fantastic group of students from the Campion School, Emerson Park, to parliament this week at a reception for supporters of the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD).
Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, hosted the reception in Speakers House, bringing together school children, parish representatives and young adults who have campaigned with CAFOD over the last couple of years. This year's reception celebrated the work of CAFOD campaigners in tackling injustice at home and overseas and reaffirmed the importance of civic participation.
The Campion School community have long been keen CAFOD supporters and have participated in a number of their campaigns. Last year, pupils at Campion, alongside 60,000 young people from across the country, took part in in a CAFOD campaign to remind the Prime Minister that the ‘Eyes of the World’ were on him in the run-up to COP26.
